Using out-of-date applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites as these things make it much easier to hack them. This will get worse if you have a couple of websites as all of them will be in danger if an attacker takes over just one of them. Because of this we have created JailHost - an advanced security feature that isolates sites from each other. In case an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to find or access any other content outside the site folder, so all the other sites hosted within this account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option cannot be a substitute for performing regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some site where you would like to allow users or admins to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host several different Internet sites, you can easily separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and shield all of your sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged site very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
